BROKEN ARROW, OK - A decision has been made about the fate of a liger involved in a deadly attack at Safari's Wildlife Sanctuary.  The sanctuary says Rocky the liger will not be put down.

Rocky is a thousand pound half lion, half tiger mix that mauled to death a 32 year old handler last month.

Safari's also announced the sanctuary will reopen for a special benefit Thanksgiving weekend.  It's raising money to pay for food for the animals.
